Playoff and Award Predictions

AMERICAN LEAGUE AWARDS
AL MVP: Miguel Cabrera, Det.(First year in Detroit's potent lineup should yield huge numbers and a trip to the postseason)
AL Cy Young: Justin Verlander, Det. (Has improved over the last 2 years and could win 22 this year with that lineup behind him)
Rookie of the Year: Evan Longoria, Tam. (Will be called upon early in the season, and should be a full time starter after that)
Manager of the Year: John McClaren, Sea. ( Seattle is poised to break out with a big year this year and McClaren will be pushing all the buttons)
Comeback Player: Francisco Liriaino, Min. (After missing all of the '07 season recovering from TJ surgery, he should return to form in '08)

NATIONAL LEAGUE AWARDS
NL MVP: David Wright, NYM ( Look for his 4th full season to be his best yet: .320, 40-30 with 120+ rbi)
NL Cy Young: Johan Santana, NY (After winning 2 AL Cy Young awards, he figures to start collecting a few in the NL)
Rookie of the Year: Kosuke Fukudome, Chi. (31-year old Japanese import should have a solid year hitting in the middle of the Chicago Cubs lineup)
Manager of the Year: Joe Torre, LA (Could very well lead the Dodgers to the best record in the NL with all that pitching and young offense)
Comeback Player: Pedro Martinez, NY (If this spring is any indication, it looks like Martinez has found a second baseball life)

    I wanted to know what has you thinking David Wright is good for UP TO 40 Homers!?!?! 30 okay, 35 would be against the odds, 40 would be unbelievable.

    I like this because neither New York team or Boston was picked to go to the World Series.

    I think Manny Parra has a pretty good chance of making it back-to-back Brewer ROYs. He's already in the rotation and will probably stay there all season. I expect about a 3.50 ERA from him, which isn't spectacular but it's good and he should add a bunch of strikeouts.
